As an employee, why would you ever want equity in a company that was keen to whip away your employment rights?
Organisations that feel the need to reduce employment rights in such a way need to look at their own systems and management to discover why they have a problem. Did they set out to employ the most lazy and incompetent candidates they could find at interview? Of course they didn't, so what have they done to change the bright, enthusiastic people they employed into disposable resource that they are seeking to remove?
It's the system stupid; go take a look and find the solution within.

As an idea, it is plainly going nowhere. This is a government of amateurs in most of the top jobs. Did George Osborne run this silly proposal past anybody with some knowledge of the workplace?
